Traveling by train may not be the fastest way to get from one place to another but it surely is one of the most romantic and comfortable one. There is something almost magical about the railway. The nearly meditational rythm of all the sounds that surround you, the landscape behind the window passing just slowly enough to observe and enjoy the view. The legends of the Orient Express and the Transsyberian Railways make the experience a lot more inspiring than just flying or driving a car.
Trains are great way to discover not only the country but to make friends and get great insights into the culture of a country you visit. We’ve collected some interesting facts about this way of moving around. Chances are you were rather oblivious to most of them. Enjoy and share!
